to be able to spy on our businesses. let me just say this. last year the united states, pursuant to cyber command, the united states lost over 300 billion dollars of trade secrets. that's $300 billion of trade secrets as a result of cyber attacks. >> brown: but excuse me, but is there... is it the lack of evidence? i mean the lack of them being clear with you or is there evidence that they might do something? >> we also have evidence. we have evidence that the chinese government have been doing it. as far as huiwei is concerned we have gotten a lot of data and information about huiwei but most of our concern is the relationship between their government. >> brown: you heard that the company pushed back pretty hard after this report came out. they accuse... they said little more than an exercise in china-bashing. >> the first thing, we're not masquerading at all national security to do any chinese bashing. that's not what we do as americans. in my message basically and my message to the chairman of huiwei was if you want to do business in the united states the first thing you do is disclose
closer to the united states and they're not krtable with that because they saw nato and turkey and the united states get together and take out qaddafi and they don't want that to happen again to another ally. last but not least this is also putin's primal fear that if he sets up a precedent of supporting an uprising and the international community to back that uprising, they say what if tomorrow there's a russian spring so he doesn't like what's going on in syria at all. >> warner: what message is turkey sending to russia? russia is a major arms supplier to syria. are they saying you can't use turkish arms space to ship arms in? at least not on passenger planes? and can they enforce it? >> there's a gray area of legality and the turks are enforcing it. they are saying we can do this because it ears our airspace and they're probably acting on intelligence that might have come to them from other places. usually if the turks that has kind of intelligence it's not theirs. and the turks -- >> warner: kind of a nato intelligence? >> that's possible and i think the turks felt comfort
of the united states. >> both candidates appealed to women voters today, picking up where they left off last night, when one of the townhall voters asked where they stand on pay equities. the president pointed to his 2009 finding of the fairer pay act as an example of his support for women. >> president obama: that's an example of the kind of advocacy we need because women are are increasingly the bread winners in the family. this is not just a win issue, this is a family issue, a middle class issue, and that's why we've got to fight for it. >> romney taughted his record as massachusetts governor, where he said he went out of his way to recruit women for his cabinet. >> i went to my staff and said, how come all of the people for these jobs are all men. and they said these are the people who have the qualifications. i said, gosh, can't we find some women that are also qualified. so we took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet. i went to a number of women's groups and said can you help us find folks. they broug

daylight between the united states and israel. >> woodruff: let me turn then to michelle flournoy. how do you respond for the campaign? >> the iran case is a great example of where the rhetoric would suggest huge differences between the president's position and governor romney's position. when you actually look at what romney called for, crippling sanctions, positioning our forces to be ready in the gulf and keeping the military option on the table, that's exactly what president obama has done. and exactly what his record will show. so it's a case of overdrawing the differences rhetorically but then actually not being able to say much about what would governor romney really do differently as commander in chief. >> woodruff: what about peter feaver's point that the decisions made a couple of years narrowed the choices? >> i'm not sure what he's referring to there. i think president obama, one of the things he did at the start of this administration was invest in strengthening our alliances and partnerships that have brought the international community around this strategy. this isn't just
